Kontext Annual

Kontext also organises an annual event that picks up on current and relevant topics for the design industry. It presents business cases from various industries that can act as impulses and stimuli for other sectors. Kontext Annual is interdisciplinary and non-seasonal.

Speakers from the fields of design, applied arts, research and industry provide insights into their activities and the issues they are currently involved with and fascinated by. Design-related achievements, projects and pioneering technologies are also presented at these events. Pursuing an interdisciplinary understanding of trends means identifying the drivers behind pioneering developments.

Design for lifecycle - through design to a circular product!

There is no way of avoiding a circular economy in the future. But realising it means overcoming a variety of major challenges: which prerequisites will companies have to fulfil in order to achieve the transition from a linear to a circular value chain? How can design be applied as a methodical and creative solution?

Be there when experts present their concepts and ideas.

This event is aimed exclusively at members of Swiss Textiles, guests of the Design Preis Schweiz and media representatives. Participation in this year's KONTEXT Annual is free of charge. The invitation is personal, non-transferable and will be sent out in August. Registration opens mid of August. The number of participants is limited.
